21 July - 2 September 2012

An adventure trail and playful installation taking you on a journey through the imagination of Shakespeare.

Pick up your Adventure of the Missing Manuscript map from the theatre and go on a trail taking you around the RSC buildings, gardens and Stratford-upon-Avon town centre.  You can do all of the trail in one go (approximately 2 hours) or come and complete the tasks over different visits.

You can also visit Shakespeare's Mind Theatre in the Swan Room. Use the Story Generator Machine to create your own story, get ideas for props and costumes, create sound effects and perform your play in the Shadow Theatre. 


Open 10am - 6pm
